Today is the first sunny after school of the year. We went to the park, along with every other child in a 5 mile radius, and Eva asked to go on the baby swing. As I levered her in, I realised how much she’d grown since last summer. She’s got two terms of school under the belt of her grubby Belle dress and in so many ways she is not my baby any more. It’s been 7 years since I first hesitantly lowered her brother into one of those and now it seems that this summer we might be done with the baby swings once and for all.
